Join noted book discussion leader Judy Levin on Zoom as she discusses 'The Dutch House' by Ann Patchett. Registration required.

At the end of WWII, Cyril Conroy propels his family from poverty to immense wealth. He then moves his wife and two children, Danny and Maeve, into the majestic Dutch House, a mansion outside Philadelphia.

Set over the course of five decades, The Dutch House is a dark fairy tale about two smart people who cannot overcome their past. Despite every outward sign of success, Danny and Maeve are only truly comfortable when they’re together. Throughout their lives they return to the well-worn story of what they’ve lost with humor and rage. But when at last they’re forced to confront the people who left them behind, the relationship between an indulged brother and his ever-protective sister is finally tested.

Check book availability.

Details on how to participate will be sent after registration.
